Protecting our members’ personal information and using it in a manner consistent with their expectations is a high priority CUP Federal Credit Union. Therefore, the Board of Directors has adopted the following policy:
Our credit union will collect only the personal information that is necessary to conduct our business. We will maintain strong security controls to ensure that member information in our files and computers is protected. Where appropriate, we will use security coding techniques to guard against unauthorized access to personal records, ensure the accuracy and integrity of communications and transactions, and protect member confidentiality.
We will only share information (1) to administer the products and services we provide, (2) when required to do so by the government, or (3) when we partner with other businesses to offer a broader array of products and services such as credit life or disability insurance on loans. Those businesses are required to follow strict confidentiality requirements.
Our members will always have access to their personal information and the opportunity to make necessary changes to ensure that our records are complete, current, and accurate.
CUP Federal Credit Union is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and other users of this website.

Online Banking Services
Nonpublic personal information may be collected when a credit union member registers to use CUP FCUs secure online services such as Home Banking. Personal information provided by a user via any of the credit union’s online services is used only to process the member’s request for service.
CUP Federal Credit Union does not sell or provide any member information to list services, telemarketing firms, or our outside companies for their independent use.
